ACC Week 6 Predictions: Miami-Florida State Rivalry, Clemson Hosts Georgia Tech

The ACC was in the spotlight last Saturday, as Clemson defeated Notre Dame in one of the top games from Week 5. There’s not as much buzz surrounding the ACC this Saturday, but there’s still an intriguing primetime matchup in Week 6. Florida State hosts Miami in a key game for recruiting and bragging rights in the Sunshine State. The Seminoles-Hurricanes matchup is the must-see contest in the ACC this weekend, but Clemson-Georgia Tech is also a critical showdown. Can the Tigers remain unbeaten? Or will the Yellow Jackets bounce back after three straight losses? Elsewhere in the ACC for Week 6, NC State plays at Virginia Tech on Friday night, while Virginia travels to Pittsburgh, Boston College hosts Wake Forest and Duke plays Army in a non-conference matchup.
